Sheriff: Deputies Shoot Man Threatening to Throw Brick
ANDERSON, S.C. (AP) — Authorities say a man was shot by a deputy in South Carolina after he threatened to throw a brick.
Anderson County Sheriff spokeswoman Lt. Sheila Cole told news outlets that deputies were called to a home in Anderson because a son was attacking his father.
Cole says when deputies arrived around 9 p.m. Thursday, the son came out from behind cars holding a brick.
Sheriff John Skipper says the man was shot in the shoulder when he pulled his arm back with the brick. Cole says the man is expected to recover. The names and races of the people involved weren't released.
This is the 48th time a law enforcement officer has shot at someone this year in South Carolina — the most in the last 15 years.
